All cut-rate companies do not look alike to
the critical observer. The one at the Murray
Hill I robustly alive this week with a revival
cf "The Three Guardsmen." It is a wonder
this cool old melodrama has so long escaped.
Romance is still In the theatrical air. and the
i older Dumas is the dramatist to whom mana
gers and authors are turning. "The Three
CuirdimiJn" has seeu almost continuous
service In America, although In England,
where It has lately been reproduced. It has
not been seen except at long intervals. The
late Alexander Salvinl succeeded Frank Mayo
u a notable 1Artagan. and his vigorous, plc-turei-iiue
style kept the play in his repertoire.
Alter his death it did not fall Into dtsuxe. for
Fiul Tazeneuve, once his associate, chose it
as a means of Introducing himself ambitious
ly. It his in thes ways been IceDt familiar to
the cnblic. and possibly for that reason, did not
for a lonif time claim the attention of the stock
companies. In England, with the work prac
tically out ot view for years, new versions have
roused an Interest that would b nearly im
possible here. Mr. Bothern has produced in
Philadelphia a plav made by Henry Hamilton
from the novel. This was llrst Intpnded to be
a novelty in modern stagecraft. It was to be
divided Into two oartu and occupy two
tvenings. The experimental feature of this
itemed too great and only the most sig
nificant features of the storr were used.
In arranging the material Mr. Hamilton
leems lo have succeeded better than Sydney
Grmdy. who prepared for Beorbohm 1 ree an
other Terston that has not mat with the same
favor. "The Three Musketeers' at the Mur
ray Hill this week seems to be tho same form
of the story that was used by Alexander Ral
Tint It is quite as good as It need be. The
language is not always polished, and ha cli
maxes are occasionally unduly precipitate.
Hut the breathless action, the Intensity, and
the suspense ot the adventure all seem to be
fairy retained in It. Charles like Is the
name of the adapter, and in view of the dim
putties that condensation In such a book im
plies, the whole work Is surprisingly clear
and logical. It Is well acted at the Murray
Hilt. In view ot the cheapness ot the Per
formance, it was surprisingly well given. Of
the three leading figures Kohert prouet Is
spirited and fiery, while William Redmund
shows the authority ot experience. Emmet
King has been mom successful In the mod
ern plays, waiter Allen Is a KichrHm on the
Dobeon Plan, and nearly as acceptable. Tho
costumes were now and tasteful and the
scenery good. The performance. In view of
the faot that tt can be s-.'n for 23 cents. Is
remarkable.
Audiences at Koiter A Blal's are In a fair
way to become expert Judges oftage dano
Ing. The Dartoa and the Rappos are new
there. The Dartos are two men and two wo
mou The men wear black dress coats and
knee breeches. The women's sleeveless, low
necked gowns have skirts that almost touch
the floor. One of the men announces a polka,
mazurka or waltz, and then the quartet gets
to dancing somewhat after tho manner ot tho
familiar Be Forrest, but with for greater
elaboration. The variations of the conven
tional round dances are carried to a very
showr extreme, but they are so graceful as
to roem easy. Most of the dancing is by cou
ples, but occasionally the four join hands, and
then the thoroughness of their training Is
Bhown by Itmbornens and agility. One wo
man easily outdoes the others. In nor whirl
ing she bends from tho waist, sidewise or
backward, until her head Is level with her
hips. In one reriet of revolutions she ix sup
ported by her companion, wnlle her tack hair
touches her skirt and this In perfect time with
the mulo. Acrobntle feats are blended with
this sort of effort when this woman and a maa
nearly twice her weight are paired. He lifts
iter clear off the stage and swings her forward.
Then she does as much for him. and. with his
aid. throws him nearly as high as she has gone.
The stage is circled In this manner In waltz
time. The Rappos are two women in Itus
slan costumes. The larger one wears wide
trousers and red ton boots and Is eccentrlo.
Tho other, dimple cheeked and rogulh eved.
wears short skirts and Is graceful. She glides
about with body bending and arms swaying,
with a violence that Is covered by her seem
ing ease ot movement. One ot the big wom
an's feats Is to dance while squatted close to
the floor, with her weight on one foot while
the other touches the boanls only with the
back of the heel. The Rappos dance very rap
idly and a;compony sjme ot their swiftest mo
tions with screams. Theirs is the most re
markable dancing since Carmenclta was at
Kuster Jt Blal's.
THE MILDRED'S STORUY rOTAOE.
After Two 3Iontlis ot Straggle with Gales
the Little Schooner Reaches Fort
The little two-masted American schooner
Mildred arrived yesterday from San Bias with
a cargo of cocoanuts and a yarn of a two
months' battle with the tempests. She sailed
from San Bias on Oct 12 and ran Into head
gales. Her provisions and water gave out and
she put Into Inagua. in the Bahamas, for a
fresh supply, blia eailfd thence on ov 1. hhe
beat her way to Hatterna and a frosty north
wester sent her scuddins a hundred miles or
mora to the southeast.
Rhe rounded the storm v cap at last and was
off Barnegat when the blast felt here on Nov.
'M sent her scurrying south again, almost back
to Hatteras. Bhe headed on her course again,
( and another gain drove her Lack. Sho shipped
the tops of combers which stars her cutwater
and carriil away a section of her after rail.
The pounding of the seas started hereamsnnd
she leaked h badly that thereafter the pump
were kept going day and night Capt Tibbett
said yesterday:
"Our water gav out about 2ov 2!. and we
drant coeoanut milksevoral days. A hard rain
came and we caught a coupl barrels of water.
Then our firewood gave out. and wo used
fenders, tho vessel's woodwork and a part of
the rail. Yesterday nijining. off Cape
Henlopon. the pilot boat Philadelphia came
out and supplied us with proU'don. We
anchored near the cap. my men being too ex
hausted to sail the vcsel further without rest.
In an onshore cilo we lost both anchors, and
were forced to set sail and claw off. The tug
I'rotector took us in tow then and brought us
to New l'ork."
Z.XVB TOPICS ABOUT TOVTX.
Only a short time ago tevoral physicians
prominent In a special branch ot practice met
to decide In what way thsy could best bring
to the attention of a colleague a question
that Interested them greatly. This physician
was almost the best known In his specialty in
the city, but his charges. In view of his repu
tation, have always been so moderate that his
associates felt the need of protesting. But
It was decided not to protest and the physi
cian received only an Intimation that his fees
sometimes astonished his brothers In the pro
fession. One physician in town has recently
introduced practlco which is said to be In
creasing In popularity with the. profes'lon.
and It Is likely that the custom will bo adopted
widely by those physicians who have authority
Snough to attempt nnythlng so noel. This
ootor has his patients take the prescription to
a druggist who la forbidden by the, terms ot
his agreement to renew the prescription ex
cept upon a written order from the doctor, ho
patient citn get his bottle or box. refilled un
less he brings the now prescription, m Inch
means, ot course, another visit to the doctor.
?'he bottles are ot a size that lasts for a week,
n some cases the same medicines are re
newed week aftnr week, but with the order
that comes only from the llt to the doctor.
They are changed in few caes. The profes
slon has not protested against this new fashion
as vet and it Is not likely that'lt will, But It is
only the Influential and authoritative among
the Physicians that aro able to attempt It
New York Is Interested In the London opera
crisis only so far as It concerns Maurice Gran,
who was In control of the two greatest opora
houses In the world while he remained In
charge here and In London. It Is not yet set
tled what tho outcome of the matter will be.
As compared with the social, traditional and
financial complications that exist In London,
the. situation here Is simple. After the flnan- i
clot dllllcultles ore ended here, little else re
mains to perplex the'managers. The long )
season here usually leaved the singers In an
exhausted condition, and when they have
duties later tho length of time they are com
pelled to sing 1 disagreeably prolonged. 31 me.
Emma Eames finds herself compelled to do
eldo next soring between her appearances in
London ami at Unyreuth. It will bo practlcal
lv Impossible for her to sing In both place,
not only because there would bo no oppor
tunity for rest, but owing to the fart that
Mme. Coslmi Wagner reaulres so much prep
aration at Bayreuth. Mme. Earae Btudled ,
the Wagner roles under Uerr Knlese. uow
eor, two years ago. and adopts the tradi
tional Bayreuth methods so far as they coin
cide with her own ideas. Her decision will
probably depend greatly on the way in which
the question ot the London management is
settled. Nobody o far has taken Mme. liauer
meistor Into account, although her willingness
to step in on all occasions is well known. Once
she managed an opera company. She lost
most of her savings, but that is the fate of the
impresario, and should till more qualify her
as a candidate for Covent Garden.
The Women's Health Protective Association
would seem to have a large order on hand in
the attempt to make the public do what the
street car conductors describe as "stepping
forward." The crowds still cling tenaciously
to doors of street cars and submit to compul
sory transfer to the other end of the car only
vhen It Is not to be prevented, l'enuadlng the
public to mote away from that position will
neter be possible so long as the present dlfll
culty in struggling out exists. The oer
! crowding made necessary by the recent storms
had no greater inconvenience than thestrugulo
to get out of the cars after one had got wedged
well toward the middle ot thorn. So long as
this necesilty exists the crowds will hang
about the doors, and In plte of the conduc
tor's per-uasion they will not "step forward"
notwithstanding the eltorti ot the Women's
Health 1'rouctlve Association. This bodv ha
already accomplished some good things, ot
which the most notable was the progress mada
in restricting a habit to which it had been nec
essary to call utrenllon through signs hung in
the cars. The uehlevement in that direction
is evident to everybody who rides, and it la
duo almost entirely to this bodv. which is co
Ins to try now to see what it can do toward
keeping tho doors of the cable cars shut
M. Saleza Is one of twelve children, and all
of his seven brothers are singers. But he is
the only one that has eer taken to the stage.
An older brother has ewn a better voice -hnn
the tenor and went to Tai Is for the purpose of
entering tho Conservatoire But It was found
that ho was quite unmusical, and he r-turned
to the south of France without making any
effort to follow a musical career. All ot his
other urothers s!n. although nona ot them
has ever thought ot going on the operatia
stage. After his second appearance as Jfo
me, M. Salera will, be heard as DonJo$4 In
'"Cnrmen," a pile which ha has frequently sung
with Mile. Calve, and with her 'taken an equal
share In tho honor of the performance. Both
come from the south of France, near the Span
ish frontier, and. in spite ot the fact that ho
wishes It distinctly understood ho is not a
Hpanlard. M. Saleza lived near enough to the
frontier to sympathize with the emotion of
(to-mm's lover. In London his aetlngpf tho
last act was praised especially. Mile. ZJlle de
Lussan will slng.ttorwrt and Emma Eames
will be heard as Muatto. Probably in Henry
Albors: there will be anlEieomllo better than
any New York has seen In years. That has
always been a weak feature of previous per
formances of - Carmen." Neither Slgnor An
cona. Victor Maurcl nor Edouard do Reszke
was satisfactory. Good IMn .urns are not so
hard to And. but few attempt the role with tho
previous reputation ot M. Saleza,
Antonio Terry, who Is said to ba seriously
111 nt Nice, recently underwent a surgiaol op
eration In Paris, and it was then said that he
had fully recovered. The rumor that he Is
dying abroad is not credited by his friends
here. Ills wife, who was formerly Sibyl Hen
derson, hail an attack of apoplexy shortly after
their marriage and not until a few months ago
was she able to take her place in the society
to which her husband's wealth had admitted
her. Ho Is rich, although hi? wealth has been
muuh exaggerated and never amounted to the
millions commonly attributed to him. But he
is quite able toallord thoextravognnl liberality
which he had sometimes shown toward stage
beauties before his marriage.
Frank J. Gould, who has Just reached his
majority. Is, like his brother George, on ex
pert telegraph operator. Ii'or some time he
has occupied a desk In tho office of the Mis
souri Paclllo Railroad at H3 Broadway, where
he may be said to hao been receiving his
I financial education, preparatory .to, assuming
his place In tho directorates of tho various
Uould properties. One of his friends said yes
terday that young Mr. Gould, from his prac
tical knowledge of telegraphy, had doubtless
manifested more than usual Interest In the
operations of the Western. Union ITelegraph
Company, and that It was quite likely that he
would devote his special attention to that
branch ot the Gould family Investments.
